MSI StarReader Smart does not work in MS Windows 7 RRS feed

  • Soru

  • Hi!

    I have a StarReader Smart card reader and I can't use it under windows 7. When I connect it windows recognize it as "eHome Infrared Receiver (USBCIR)" and install a wrong driver. I have tried RC and RTM releases in 5 different computer. Card reader works under Vista and XP. Please tell me, how to make windows 7 recognize my card reader correctly.

    Thanx!

  • I found solution:

    1. go to Device Manager, then right click eHome Infrared Receiver (USBCIR), choose Update driver.
    2. Click on Browse for driver, then Let me pick...
    3. Select USB Composite device instead eHome Infrared Receiver (USBCIR), and it works fine.
    4. Restart.


    Cheers.

  • Hello,

     

    First you might go to Device Manager, right click your hardware device in the list and select Update Driver Software; then click Search automatically for updated driver software.

     

    Note: Drivers on the Windows Update site are directly provided by hardware manufacturers. Microsoft tests drivers in various environments before they are published; however, we cannot guarantee all drivers will work on all hardware platforms as there are too many different models, although their hardware ID are the same as the standard version. In some cases, due to hardware modifications by different manufacturers, the driver updates may cause some error.

     

    If it does not work on your issue, I'd suggest you installing the Vista driver in Compatibility mode. Remove and rescan that hardware device in Device Manager, right-click on the driver executable/installer file -> Properties and select the Compatibility tab; click the checkbox before Run this program in Compatibility mode for option and select Windows Vista in the list-down box; then try installing the device driver. In addition, you can use the Windows XP driver for testing.

     

    Meanwhile, please understand that Windows 7 is a new operating system and whole driverstore has been reprogrammed; you might wait or push the device manufacturer to upgrade its driver. Thanks for your time and understanding!

     

    For more details, please look at the first Sticky thread at the top of this forum.

    What can I do if my hardware does not work?

     

    This will give you some guidelines.

     

    Good Luck!

    Andy
